Editorial Reviews

Authors Eric Hogan and Tara Hungerford have carefully crafted a television and book series to connect curiosity of the world around us, creativity, and being mindful... Appropriate for readers aged 4--8.

Green Teacher Magazine

What a delightful little book series! I was, of course, intrigued by the photography -- the felted characters with so much detail, right down to their little knitted sweaters. The Gumboot Kids website talks about wanting to create content that explores nature, while finding ways to mindfully slow down. The book really reflects this esthetic.
